What Should the HIV Clinic Look Like in the Injectable Drug Era? 

  • Handling the workload of multiple visits every two months
  • Logistical considerations of ordering, supply, storing and injecting on a large scale
  • Patient interactions: Counseling patients on use and routine of injectables
  • Dealing with poor adherence and missed visits

These topics will be discussed during a Brainstorming Roundtable in the session on Integrating Injectable Antiretroviral Regimens into Routine Care at the Nurses & Pharmacists HIV Clinical Forum 2020, on 13 November, at 09:00 CET. 

The program is specifically designed to meet the educational needs of European nurses and pharmacists involved in treating PLWH. It is a great opportunity for healthcare professionals to come together and discuss new developments and best strategies for implementation into routine care for their patients.

Register today and get updated on the integration of injectable antiretroviral regimens into routine care, clinical considerations in switching suppressed patients, and PrEP implementation from the convenience of your home or office. Registration is complimentary for all HIV healthcare professionals.

Register for the virtual forum on 13 November 2020.
